Unfortunately, this seems to be the modern business model.

        1. Generate hype.
        2. Get lots of funding.
        3. Try to invent something new before funding runs out.
        4. Sell stock before company crashes and burns.

I have seen this so many times recently that I am beginning to wonder
if anybody bothers to do development before marketing anymore.
